Our Psychological service fees at RWPsychology are set at well below the rate of $246 recommended by Australian
Psychological Society. We aim to make sessions affordable for families, and have electronic claiming available to ensure fast rebates for patients on a mental health careplan.
Private health funds may also be applicable to psychological services, and your medicare safety net threshold may also see you receive a higher return medicare payment.
Medicare rebates are significant to patients on a Mental Health Careplan referred by a GP, and a factsheet is available below with further information about the Better Access Programme.
Did you Know?
A person on a GP referred mental health careplan can receive substantial rebates towards the cost of their treatment. These rebates are sent electronically to you by medicare each session to ensure that you are left with an affordable out of pocket cost.
RWPsychology also offers concessional rates to families who may be on a Centrelink benefit, and have been referred by their GP on a mental health careplan. Patients who are on Newstart Allowance, Disability or aged pension, single parents, and non fulltime students may be eligible to receive extremely affordable concessional rates. Please contact us to discuss this option with our admin team.
